A passionate international educator, Angel is a Fulbright Scholarship alumnus and has a long relationship with UWC. He has traveled to many UWC campuses throughout his career to recruit, interview, and advise UWC students applying to university in America. Besides, he works closely on student success initiatives with UWC students on American university campuses. His passion for UWC became even stronger when he focused his Ph.D. thesis on the entire UWC system. He traveled to UWC campuses worldwide to understand how a complex, multi-national, service-oriented organization operationalizes its mission. Angel is thrilled to serve on UWCCR's Board of Trustees, a campus he feels most connected to, given his own Latino roots and commitment to intercultural and bilingual education.
